      Description

      Trying to set a UTF-8 encoded Hebrew string as the value of a PDTextField fails with the following exception:

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No glyph for U+05D7 in font AdobeHebrew-Regular

      I've tried using multiple fonts for the field, all of which can handle Hebrew characters just fine, and got the same results in all of them.
      See attached files for a demonstration of the issue.
